The tube connectors with ball joint provide even more freedom for tube constructions – a flexible alternative to welded constructions
The product family of aluminium Solid Clamp tube connectors has a new addition: size 30 base clamps, sleeve clamps and hinge clamps are now also available for delivery with integrated ball joint. A sleeve clamp with double ball also adds to the range. The ball joints are designed for loads of up to 40 Nm (static). Connected applications can be pivoted freely by 60° and rotated freely by 360°. This way, the new tube connectors with ball joint provide a significantly higher degree of freedom for construction than conventional hinged connectors. An appropriate surface coating on the ball joint makes for a high-strength clamping connection. The clamps feature a universal connecting plate for flexible integration.
Base clamps are used for plane angle connection. The tube connector can be screwed to machines or frames, for example. Components can be fastened directly to the screw surface of the ball joint and set individually.
Sleeve clamps are used for axial connections. Sleeve tube connectors can be used to extend tubes, for example. In combination with the new ball joints, components can now also be fastened to the tube end and positioned flexibly.
The basic function of the sleeve clamp is used for this purpose. However, two sleeve tube connectors are connected by a double ball joint. This combination makes for tube constructions which can be set very flexibly, and thus represents a genuine alternative to conventional welded constructions.
